Injoy, Inc. Summer Writing Program; injoyinc.comFree Summer Writing Program

Injoy, Inc. is hosting a FREE Summer Writing Program for students. These lessons contain ideas for students in PK through high school to write and enjoy fables!

Over the summer, students  explore how to create a Fable, with weekly lessons that explore these creative writing elements:

  • storytelling: creating a beginning, middle, and end
  • how to create interesting characters
  • how to make up a plot complete with conflict and resolution
  • using dialogue to enhance the plot
  • writing an interesting moral to the story

At the end of the summer, students under the age of nineteen can submit their fable to the Fable Contest (contest kicks off August 23, 2013). The top fifty+ fables will be published in an e-book, with prizes for several different age groups for the most interesting fables.

[box_dark]And one of the most exciting parts of our Fable Contest: The e-book will be offered for sale on-line, with proceeds going to help purchase reading and writing materials for school children in Moore, Oklahoma.[/box_dark]

So far, prizes include, but more will be added continually throughout the summer:

Flash Fiction writing lessons; online Write Now; injoyinc.com

Flash Fiction writing lessons; online Write Now; injoyinc.comMore details coming soon!

But basically, we’re hosting a Flash Fiction contest for short stories less than 1000 words. Yeah–that takes real skill!

We’ll be selecting about 50 winners to be published in a compilation book, so if you’ve never been published, this is a great opportunity!

If you’ve never written Flash Fiction, we encourage you to sign up for the next online writing workshop on the subject of Flash Fiction. You’ll learn valuable skills for writing a flash fiction story, and might even increase your odds of winning a spot in the published compilation!

To sign up for the class click here. Students under 19, be sure to sign up for the reduced rate.

And mark your calendar for October 18, 2013, the deadline to enter the Flash Fiction Contest. Be sure to like us on Facebook to get all the latest info about contest rules and deadlines.

Writing Contest FAQ’s

[pullquote_left]Q. What if I’m not sure I can finish my book by the deadline? Can I still enter?[/pullquote_left]
A. Absolutely. Part of the prize is having the Injoy team help you finish your book. The finalists are selected from the quality of their writing sample and book idea. We’ll work with the finalists to submit a professional book proposal that has a few sample chapters, a time-line for when the book is expected to be completed, and other info that a publisher wants to see in a book proposal. The grand prize winner will then work with Injoy to publish their book based on the deadlines they have helped establish in their time-line—it’s the real publishing process you’ll be experiencing.

[pullquote_left]Q. Can I enter more than once?[/pullquote_left]

A. Yes. You may submit more than one entry in the writing contest. Students (eighteen and under on April 30, 2013) can even enter both the student and the adult contest with the same entry. The finalists are selected primarily on the quality of their writing sample, so just be sure to submit your best work for each entry.

[pullquote_left]Q. Can the finished manuscript be longer than 30,000 words?[/pullquote_left]

A. Yes. The length of the finished manuscript will be determined by writer and publisher in the proposal process. Some books are complete at 30,000 words. Some–are much longer! Finalists will work with the Injoy team to estimate an appropriate word length for their proposed manuscript.

[pullquote_left]Q. Can I submit a nonfiction writing sample in the contest?[/pullquote_left]

A. Yes. Finalists will be selected on the quality of their writing, and their book idea. Nonfiction books require a different proposal process than fiction books, but the Injoy team will help finalists prepare a nonfiction book proposal to enter for the grand prize.

Writing Contest Update

Okay, we think you’ll bear with us as we revise the writing contest deadlines.

Since writers are deadline driven, you’re probably waiting for the deadline to enter anyway. 😉 And since no entries have been submitted yet, we still have time to adjust and publish the new deadline dates (to give more time).

Rather than run the student and adult contest concurrently, we’re adjusting the deadline a bit! This will give us plenty of time to review the entries and select the finalists.

Student Contest: deadline to enter January 31, 2013, proposal due for finalists March 31, 2013.

Regular Writing Contest: deadline to enter February 28, 2013; proposal due for finalists April 30, 2013.

Oh, and we think you’ll really like this! You do not have to submit a final manuscript to be considered for the grand prize. Since Injoy, Inc. specializes in helping authors achieve their writing goals we’ll help finalists create a manageable timeline to complete their manuscript, as part of the prize! At Injoy, Inc. we know how to help you set realistic goals for completing your manuscript! If you have ability and talent, and a good idea, and you are the grand prize winner, then we will work with you to set up a timeline for your  manuscript submission, and we’ll help you along the way by encouraging you and assisting you with tools to help you in completing your manuscript.

To enter the contest, just submit a sample of your work here. Submit either 1-2 of your best chapters or 1500-3000 words of writing that you’ll include in your book, and if you are selected as a finalist, we’ll help you put together a more detailed proposal that will show us what your finished book will look like. If you are selected as the grand prize winner of a publishing package, we will encourage you to finish your manuscript and publish your book!
